Avicii to Collaborate with Coldplay, Bon Jovi, Green Day, Corpse of EDM on New Album

+

One sure fire way to tell when a piece of popular entertainment is going to be high quality is by the number of incongruous guest stars shoe-horned into it. Like putting hip hop artists who’ve never acted before in their lives into major studio releases, for example. Always a winner. Looks like we’re in for another completely organic and in no way calculated grab at cross-demographic blanket coverage with the next album from Avicii. The Swedish hit-maker, aka Tim Bergling, last seen causing mass casualties at a show in Boston, has got a clown car of an album in the works, according to a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

Avicii has collaborations on deck with Chris Martin of Coldplay, Jon Bon Jovi, Serj Tankian of System of a Down,  Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day (called “No Pleasing a Woman” — which, am I right fellas?), “a reggae duet between Wyclef Jean and Matis­yahu”, and, presumably, a track with a hip-talking, street smart, skateboarding cartoon dog.

“I love it,” Bergling says of the song, “but I don’t know what to do with it yet.”

How about this:
